Mike Fucito is a blur

So I had to write about him.
Fucito, if he can stay healthy, is going to make a serious play for a roster spot. The practices I saw this week and last are intriguing in that there are some good roster spot battles and cuts aren’t happening so quickly as with last season, when guys were let go after the first week.
My locks for the 24-man: Alonso, Estrada, Evans, Gonzalez, Hurtado, Ianni, Jaqua, Keller, King, Levesque, Ljungberg, Marshall, Montero, Nyassi, Riley, Vagenas, Zakuani.
I think Taylor Graham, Nathan Sturgis, Lamar Neagle and Zach Scott have the advantage of experience but need to show something in camp. I like what I’ve seen from Graham thus far, he’s running well. If Fucito makes it, that’s 22, then the team needs a backup GK (Terry Boss is the incumbent), and Jamel Wallace could be a developmental guy if he shows well.
I think the team has at least one major player signing in it this offseason. So someone from above might not make it.
